The game between Preston and Derby County marks the start of round 30 of the Championship. The home team warmed up for this match with a 2-0 win as guests of Stoke City over the week. This was the second consecutive away win of The Lilywhites, which hasn’t happened this season. At home, Preston don’t have a win in the previous three fixtures of Championship, but on the other hand, the team didn’t miss a chance to score in each of these games on Deepdale.
Over the week, Derby were close to sensational failure in FA Cup, but the team won with 1-0 as a guest of Accrington Stanley. In the previous two weeks, Frank Lampard’s players have lost only against the third and the fourth team in the standings of the Championship – Leeds United and Sheffield United. In both of these games, The Rams were guests, and Derby definitely have problems away from Pride Park.
Derby have just two clean sheets in the last 16 away fixtures in all competitions, conceding ten goals in the previous five games in Championship. The Rams traditionally are playing well against Preston and for the last time lost on Deepdale in 2008, but in their current form, the home team should not be underestimated. The strong performance of Preston at home and the shaky play of Derby as guest obligates us to look a bet for goals for both sides.
